Urban Farming Workshops in Amsterdam
Our pilgrimage for sustainability continues at home. Last saturday I went to an Urban Farming workshop at De Ceuvel, a local hub for creative enterprises and sustainable initiatives.
I attended a workshop by Cityplot, about composting with worms in the city and made my own wormfarm to take home.
(The bucket I’m using is recycled. Cityplot picked it up at a candy factory.)
I hope to be able to combine the composting with worms with aquaponics one day, feeding the plants with super-nitricious worm-tea. so I was happy to be able to attend the opening of the aquaponics farm build by Nomad Farmers, to start learning about that too.
Still a long way to go before I’ll be able to produce my first lettuce on homemade worm-tea, but definitely a first step.
I intend to regularly update on my progress. First challenge is to keep the worms alive and happy...
For now the worms live on a flat roof just outside my window
